A football fan so disgusted with the referee’s decision to send-off a player in last night’s Champions League clash, rang 999 to report the incident to Nottinghamshire Police.
The 18-year-old Manchester United supporter was watching the second-leg tie against Real Madrid from his home in a village near Bingham, when he felt that Nani's controversial sending-off for a high challenge was a crime, so subsequently called police.
The man later apologised for his actions, claiming to have been caught up in the excitement.
Around two per cent of all calls reported are considered hoax by Nottinghamshire Police, with 6,933 incidents in 2012.
